Wenger has become ‘obsessed’ with signing top 18-year-old for Arsenal – report
Arsene Wenger is desperate to bring Kylian Mbappe to Arsenal this summer, according to reports
Arsene Wenger has become “obsessed” with the idea of signing Kylian Mbappe for Arsenal this summer, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mail is reporting that Wenger is desperate to land the 18-year-old forward this summer as the Arsenal manager looks to strengthen his attacking options ahead of next season.
The story says that Wenger is convinced that Mbappe could end up having a similar impact to Thierry Henry at the north London club.
The same report, however, claims it is unlikely that Arsenal will be able to pull off a deal to sign the teenager, because Monaco are quoting a price in excess of £100m for the young forward.
Arsenal do not have the lure of Champions League football next season after they ended up fifth in the Premier League table last term.
The story says that Wenger is determined to bolster his attacking options this summer and that Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are possible targets for the north London side.
Arsenal ended last season on a high by beating Chelsea to win the FA Cup at Wembley last month.
